ILC Global Land Forum 2018

About the Global Land Forum

Every two to three years, the International Land Coalition (ILC) organises the Global Land Forum (GLF). This unique event brings together ILC members and other stakeholders from grassroots organisations, activists, local and international NGOs, and researchers, to multilateral organisations and government agencies from around the world to advance understanding of the complex and dynamic political, economic, environmental and social linkages between land governance, food security, poverty and democracy. Addressing the theme “United for Land Rights, Peace and Justice”, the 2018 GLF took place from 22 until 27 September 2018 in Bandung, Indonesia.


A team of GLI policy analysts attended the Global Land Forum, consisting of eight students (four undergraduate and four Master’s students) from the departments of Architecture, Geography, Law, Politics, and Urban Studies and Planning. The team comprised Jessica Burrows, Anwesha Chakraborty, Rebecca Claydon, Anna Fish, Bastian Harth, Calvin Kumala, Zuzana Majcova and Robyn Stewart. They were joined by Dr Charis Enns from the Department of Geography and Dr Philipp Horn from the Department of Urban Studies and Planning.
